Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought a pair of these screw-lock caribiners for the main anchor point where the rope passes through on my top rope and rappel anchors. I have used the setup many times with two different ropes, as well as used one for a rappel. The generous opening is nice. I also really like the bright colors because it is easy to see them for a last anchor check and harder to lose them!

The screw lock slides well without issue and the gate opens without catches. The smooth, higher-diameter body is what I look for in my master-point caribiners. This is not super light, but it feels solid, which is my preference when I am not carrying it up a wall.

This is my new favorite belay device! I have four tube-style belays that I share around when I take people climbing, but I tend to use this one myself. It is light and easy to load. My ropes are 10.1 and 9.8 (Sterling) and they slide well in this device but brake easily as well.

I use this for rappelling and belaying top rope climbers. Almost all of the people I belay are heavier than me, so I love having the teeth to assist my stop. As a lighter climber, I also like the option to turn the device around and use the other side for a quicker rappel.

I have had this harness for about a month and a half and have used this harness in the gym and at the crag. It is comfortable enough that I often leave it on for the hike back from the crag to cut weight in my pack. I do top rope and rappelling and I have enough space to rack all of the caribiners I use on two natural anchors on the harness with room to spare for my extra belays and belay biners. I feel comfortable and secure in this harness for all uses I have tried (gym, top rope, belay, rappel, tie-in to tear down anchors).

I am 5'5", 115 lb with a short torso/long legs and my legs are on the thinner side. The XS fits me well. I have room for layers around the waist and some thin layers on the legs. If I did have thicker legs I may have an issue with leg loop diameter. Definitely do a measurement if you are unsure. The sizing chart seemed fairly accurate to me.
